South Florida Grand Theft Attorneys
Grand theft, which is always a felony crime, can be charged under a wide range of circumstances, including:
- Stealing a car (grand theft auto)
- Hijacking commercial cargo
- Taking equipment from a police or rescue vehicle
- Theft of a firearm
- Stealing a stop sign
- Rustling a farm animal or agricultural produce
- Looting after a hurricane or other state of emergency
- Stealing anything valued at $300 or more
- Stealing anything worth $100 or more from a residence
The actual charges depend upon the value of the property stolen, the nature of the property, and the circumstances. First-degree grand theft is a first-degree felony, carrying up to 30 years in prison and second-degree grand theft carries a maximum of 15 years. Even third-degree grand theft is punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
We Know What’s at Stake
It may have been a crime of opportunity, a prank, or a dare. It may have been fueled by drinking, drugs, or a gambling habit. There may have been no intent to keep what was stolen. Or you may be innocently accused for the actions of others.
Whatever the circumstances, our attorneys take the charges dead seriously because of the severe punishments. We examine every facet of the prosecution’s case — physical evidence, witness testimony, searches and search warrants, valuation of property, identification, criminal intent — to avoid a conviction as charged. We aim for dismissal and we will go to trial under the right circumstances, but we also explore diversion programs and plea negotiations to avoid prison and the felony on your record.
